All businesses can benefit

More businesses than ever benefit from R&D tax credits, but still billions remain unclaimed. Either due to under claiming or never claiming, this needs a technical eye to really drive the outcome. Rarely does this R&D translate into IP and Patent, that’s where we come in.

Many businesses do not consider R&D tax credits as something that could apply to them. Most do not see the value in applying for patents. No matter the sector, size or maturity of a business there are opportunities to benefit from innovation incentives.

  • Almost any manufacturer
  • Software developments that are not off the shelf
  • Offering a genuinely a new product – you google it and can’t find it
  • Offering a product which exists but you address a performance issue or take the product on to another stage
  • Your product was launched in a limited market so part of scalability was to take the product into different sectors and applications
  • You are growing through acquisition and there is uncertainty in integration
  • For example, bakery selling more of an artisan bread does not present a challenge, however taking manufacturing of bread from a bakery to factory could qualify as innovation
  • Your consumers will expect new versions
  • A dip in income forces you to do something to improve the product or service
  • There can be an ongoing drive to be leaner and increase margin
  • Sometimes innovation is found in “the day job”, perhaps a new reporting tool, updating old machinery and adapting machinery
  • How do you value your innovation – our due diligence could reveal the value of your R&D and Intellectual Property

What are the benefits of a GovGrant review?

A GovGrant review is more than the sum of its parts. Your GovGrant technical specialist will come and walk the floors so they are ideally placed to give an overview of all of the innovation incentives you could be entitled to.

Unlike any other provider, GovGrant takes a genuinely holistic approach and thinks about the big picture. We look at things in the whole rather than breaking it down into parts – so you can be sure that your innovation is recognised and receives the full range of available government funding.

How can we help you maximise the value of your innovation?

We attend and run workshops, webinars, exhibitions and events to share knowledge and keep you up to date with the issues that impact innovation in your business.
